I was a serial entrepreneur for 20 years. It seemed I “had it all”. But something started gnawing at my soul. There was something I knew I wanted to do more. Something I felt was my life’s greatest calling…
I grew up in a good neighborhood in Salt Lake City, but my family didn’t have much money. We weren’t starving by any means, but as a kid,I didn’t have anything just handed to me so I worked a lot. At 10 years old, I was selling cold sodas to thirsty golfers between the 6th and 7th hole on the golf course. At 14, I was a dishwasher and busboy. Then on to mowing lawns, 33 per week. The summer before my senior year, I was doing grueling construction work for $5/hr. Hard work is how I got the things I wanted.

Mike spent the next 20 years becoming a thriving serial entrepreneur by starting & building a number of high-ticket sales companies in a variety of industries – each without outside financing or a written business plan – generating over $100 Million in sales.
